I hit 3 Walmarts and 3 TRU's today from St Catherines to Burlington but no sign of the new Wave Four 3.75" figures.  The only new things were the 3.75 inch metal figures and all but one store had sold out of the Vaders already.  Some just had Lukes left.

They are doing their resets in the toy department so hopefully stuff will start trickling in over the next couple of weeks.
I don't understand why Hasbro makes crap like the Titanium figures, I'm surprised they are selling at all at Walmart when they were on special last week at ToysRus for $17 a piece.
I guarantee that by Christmas this year the entire first wave, and perhaps the second wave, will be in deep clearance at all the Brick and Mortars and Amazon as well.

Only way I'd buy these were if they were on clearance for like $5 so I can buy them for the stand and background.

The Han I saw today had paint flaked off his pants so his crotch was a mix of silver with blue splotches.  And this is on a part that doesn't even have articulation!

You took the words out of my mouth. I saw the Luke and Han ones at Walmart today and thought "The stands and backdrop look nice. The figure is crap."  I'd buy them at $5 too, and definitely not for the figure itself but maybe just as a display base for my super-articulated 3.75" Star Wars figures :)

I saw them all in Orlando. The etching backdrop and figure of Leia was the only one I liked. I only hope these are successful enough that the droids get made in metal.

Went to my local Sunrise Records today. New store, opened right where HMV just closed (doesn't seem like a good business plan). They did indeed have 40th Anniversary 6 inch figures including the only Han Solo I've actually seen in a store but they were $39.99. I would have paid that for an R2-D2 though.

They probably factor in that Leia, Ben, and Luke will be peg warming so if they jack up the price on the R2 and Han they will essentially make the amount they want on the set as a whole even when they discount that 3 peg warmers. If I had a store I would probably consider doing the same or trying to sell them as a set.

Most collector/hobby shops have been doing that for decades.  Chase/Variant figures (McFarlane Sportspicks) were always sold for a higher price right out of the factory case.  I'm not saying it's right or it's wrong because I totally get it why some shops do that - but there are a few out there that push it to the point of gouging.

Since it's Sunrise, a chain store, I'm guessing the price for ALL the figures was $39.99, not just the harder to find ones.

Never heard of it.....upon googling it one just opened in my town a couple of days ago.  Will investigate it tomorrow.

There's a shoretrooper available on the site right now, but the rest of the wave isn't even listed.

Looks like TRU is the place for wave 4.
